What to expect?
A meditative 2 hours of experimentation and fun, helping you gain confidence in how to approach figurative drawing. Sasha will suggest various exercises to get your eye in and help you to become more confident drawing lines of gesture and movement for your figure.
Then we will welcome portrait painter and artist Isabel Douglas-Hamilton who will help you hone your observational skills and establish correct proportions in figure drawing with the use of classical drawing techniques.
In the second part of the class Isabel will do a more detailed demonstration to show how she approaches the figures including some useful ways of measuring basic proportions and come round and help anyone who wants more guidance.
Everyone is welcome, just pick up your pencil or any material lying around and start exploring!
